Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah lambasted Saudi Arabia on Sunday for its execution of a prominent Shiite Muslim cleric a day earlier, saying such action will not be taken lightly.Nasrallah's ferocious blasting of Saudi Arabia came amidst worldwide protest by angry Shiite Muslims over the execution of Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr on Saturday, which was carried out by Saudi authorities on charges of terrorism and sectarian incitement.Saudi Arabia's minority Shiite Muslim sect, which was led by Nimr, is based in the country's east."Yemen which stood up to the Saud family has been bombed for months ... Anyone who opposes the (Saudi) regime is killed," Nasrallah said.He said the execution of Nimr sent a message to the Arab and Muslim world, saying Saudi Arabia did not take into consideration the stance of its allies, nor of the Muslim world, nor of the international community in general, which warned Saudi authorities of implementing the death penalty against the Shiite sheikh.Nasrallah warned Shiite Muslims not to be dragged into a Shiite-Sunni conflict, but to be aware of such attempts.
